Holiday Shipping - special note

As you probably know, we offer free shipping on orders of $10 or more but the holidays make our shipping policy a little more complicated. Since our normal (free) method of shipping is Media Mail via the post office, we cannot offer free shipping on orders that include puzzles, games or other non-book merchandise. If your order includes any of these we must ship your order Priority Mail and we'll have to charge you $4.50 for shipping regardless of the size of your order.

Please note that our website is unaware of this distinction and will still show Free Shipping for orders that include non-book items. Despite this, we will have to charge your the $4.50 shipping.

We apologize for any confusion this may cause but our hands are tied by the Post Office rules covering Media Mail shipments.

It's Back: The Girl Who Kicked a Hornet's Nest

The Girl Who Kicked a Hornet's Nest is back in stock but it won't last long. If you'd like a copy, for yourself or as a unique holiday gift, you'd best get your order in now before we run out again.

Those who have fallen in love with Stieg Larsson's series about Lizbeth Salander will be excited about the arrival of the third and final installment in the trilogy: The Girl Who Kicked a Hornet's Nest. Mary Alice and I having just yesterday finished listening to The Girl Who Played with Fire are simply dying to find out what happens next in this compelling trilogy that began with The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.

The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest is a British import and is available in limited quantity. Please order now to avoid disappointment.
